God received the most beautiful person we have ever known into Glory on Thursday, February 8, 2018. She was the most loving, kind and caring mother. She can now rejoice with the angels.

Tate (John), Mrs. Mildred C. Gates (Clinton) and Mrs. Carolyn H. Beard (Walter).
Mary Hanna Hutchins graduated from Conway Vocational High School with honors. She continued her education at Jackson State University earning a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Elementary Education. She taught school for thirty years, in the Public School System of Mississippi at Carthage Elementary School and Durant Separate School Elementary. She was a teacher, a friend and the school nurse when school nurses didn’t exist. She touched the lives of many children with her caring, kind persona.
Mary was united in matrimony with Kermit W. Hutchins on December 5, 1965. They celebrated 45 years together before Kermit’s death on March 21, 2011. To this union, four children were born, Wanda L.
